Nutrition & Exercise

and run down.

Emotional causes of Illness
These common, more widely accepted examples can all be related to an emotional
Obesity / Comfort Eating
When you overeat your weight increases and also the physical strain
on your body increases. Many overeaters use food as a means of comfort
against an emotional/mental issue.
Headaches / Mental stress
When you overwork, you are not giving yourself any time to relax. If
you are not relaxing, then you are constantly thinking about what you
need to do, this causes a mental overload of activity in your brain.
Colds & Flu / Overextending ourselves
When we become run-down through our busy lifestyles, we literally run
our batteries down. When our resistances are low, we are more
susceptible to colds and flu.
Less medically accepted examples, yet spiritually
accepted examples include:-
Heart Disease / Emotional Shutdown, blocks
When we close off, or are indifferent, when we become work-a-holics, or
are selfish in nature, we literally cause heart attack/disease.
Asthma / Communication and Expression
Asthma and breathing complications are irritated by particles in the
air. However, when we have difficulty expressing ourselves,
communicating we literally allow things to become trapped within us,
thus irritating our throat and chests. (Getting something off your
IBS / Restriction and Dependency
Most people KNOW that when they are waiting, or feeling dependent on
something, feeling restricted or nervous; they need to frequent the
toilet more often. Long bouts of restriction and dependency will lead to
more serious uterine issues.
Illness manifests from a blockage of energy.
Imagine your kitchen sink... Imagine the plumbing... First
the plug hole, then the pipe, then the U bend, then more pipe, then drain,
then more pipe eventually reaching some place owned by the water board.
Ok, now imagine your plug is blocked. Easy scrape up the
debris with a spoon and throw it in the bin.
But what happens if you poke and prod the debris through
the plug hole - it eventually creates a build up in the U bend.
Blockages in us, occur due to a build up of negative
energy, not due to a lack of scraping plates properly.
Stress, is a mental/emotional illness and now recognised
as such. If you can agree that stress can make you ill, then you have to
then accept that any kind of pressure can make you ill.
Negative energies include:-
injury or work
Prolonged exposure to dangerous substances has the effect
of making us ill. Yet, there are still instances where some people appear
to be untouched by extended exposure, or where the effects of the
substance are much delayed. The length and duration of health and
deterioration is directly linked to ones state of inner balance.
Injury serves us to remind us of things. All injury serves
a purpose of learning in some shape or form; for either a doctor, another
family member or yourself.
A Healthy Balance
A Healthy balance can be maintained by listening to what
YOUR body is telling you. By seeking inner balance, a good diet and good
Eating well, with no exercise or inner balance isn't
Having plenty of exercise, but eating poorly with no inner
balance isn't enough.
Strangely enough though; when you pull yourself into INNER
BALANCE, what happens is you start listening to your body and allow
yourself to eat what you want to eat, exercise how you want to exercise
and it all pulls into some kind of 'flow'. The eating and exercise part
becomes effortless; it is as though, if your body needs red fruit, you
just feel the pull to go eat red fruit...
Inner Balance comes from removing doubts, fears and all
those negative and confused aspects of ourselves. Inner Balance comes from
listening to your true self, acting on behalf of your true self and BEING
your true self.
